SkyX Pro w Prodome ?

I just bought a 15 prodome second hand. It has the motorized dome and shutter. I want to get automation working and was wondering if something like skyx pro with the dome add on will work or if I must spend 2k on the digital dome works from TI. Simpler solutionthe better

I control a 10 prodome with the sky x but its through DDW…

Open source X2 plugins for TheSkyX and RTI Zone

I kind of answer your question in your other thread :

And yes DDW will work with TheSkyX Pro dome add-on on Windows using ASCOM.

Thanks guys. It seems I must order ddw to use as the middle man between dome and software. Anyone know where I can get it the quickest. I really dont wanna wait months. Thanks

I have a HomeDome from TI and I use DDW with SkyX and the dome add-on. While it works…… reliable is not an adjective I would use to describe the setup.

You might want to check with Chris Erickson (Moderator of this group) to look at his setup using the controller from Cyanogen. If I had to spend the money all over again I would have purchased the Cyanogen controller and a totally different motor setup. In fact, Im looking at doing that but I cant afford it all at once so Im doing it over a few years.

Do you know if the Cyanogen (maxdome ii)is compatible with the motors that came with my pro dome? Its evencheaper than DDW. Ill give them a call as well…
